New Cook County Department of Public Health Covid mitigation orders require establishments that serve food and those defined as fitness centers to require proof of vaccination to enter. At this time, we are not requiring proof of vaccination for people to enter the library.
However, according to official library policy, all visitors over age two must wear a mask over nose and mouth while in the library, regardless of vaccination status.
Because guidelines and best practices may change, please keep an eye out for updates on our website and social media channels.
We’re excited to join Illinois Libraries Present, an organization connecting dozens of libraries across the state to offer high-quality events that might otherwise be cost-prohibitive for single libraries to hold individually. The first cooperative event, on January 26th, 2022, will be an evening with Silvia Moreno-Garcia, author of Velvet Was the Night and Mexican Gothic. Make sure to save your seats.
